Davis Park, located at 4519 Drane Drive, is named in honor of Mayor W. Richard "Dick'' Davis. Davis is a lifelong resident of University Park, graduated from Highland Park High School, Southern Methodist University and the SMU Dedman School of Law. He served as a member of the University Park Master Plan Committee and the Planning and Zoning Commission. A City Council member from 1998 to 2004, Davis was elected mayor in 2010 and 2012. 

This neighborhood park opened in 2011, during Davis' tenure as Mayor. The playground was designed especially for use by three to eight year-olds. It features a rubberized playing surface, walkways and picnic tables, area lighting, decorative fencing with brick columns, and landscaping.
